An immense meeting was held last
week at Vicksbnrg, composed of the
business community and neighboring
planters,for the purpose of expressing
gratitude for the timely message of
President Arthur, urging congression
al aid for the Mississippi river suf
ferers. The most destructive cyclone ever
known in the vicinity of Cairo, 111.,
occurred there one night last week,
not lasting over one minute, bnt
doing damage to the extent of $80,
000, .blowing down houses and
churches. No one was killed out
right, but many were seriously in
jured. A terrible accident happened on
the 23d ult., at Hannibal, Mo., .which
resulted in the total wrecking of the
steamer Little Eagle, with the loss of
three lives. The boat struck a pier
amidship, was turned bottom upward
and crushed like an egg. shell. The
boat $9,000, is a complete wreck, and
is the third boat sunk at this place.
Ralph Waldo Emerson's remains
were embalmed, and buried Sunday
last, at Sleepy Hollow, Concord. The
press everywhere is supremely eulo
gistic of his life and his work. The
briefest and truest expression of him
we have yet seen is from the London
Times: "he was the purest Intellect
and the fairest life known iu the cen
tury." One day last week a fire broke out
in what is known as the "Pap Neal
Hotel," in Lake City, Minn., burning
Ave solid squares of business build

The latest news from the Indian
troubles in Arizona and New Mexico
call for pr.nmpt action on the part of
the government controling the mil
itary forces, and we learn that there
will be a call for the troops from the
department of the Platte to aid in
their suppression. The Omaha lie

been instructed by Lieut. Gen. Sher
idan to keep the Third regiment of
cavalry and the Fourth regiment of
infantry iu readiness to move at a
The present outbreak of the Indians
in Arizona is the most disastrous
which ever occurred in that vicinity.
Not less than forty persons have been
killed. A force of Indians numbering
30Q recently crossed the Southern Pa
cific track going south, near Lords
bury. It is stated that cavalry are in
close pursuit. Col. Forsyth had last
week a little encounter with the In
dians in New Mexico, at Stein's park
range, where several Indians were
killed, as well as a number of Col.
Forsyth's scouts and men.
The saloons of Dayton, Ohio, were
all closed last Sunday under the oper
ation of the Smith Sunday law. The
people held a mass meeting, at which
it was resolved to enforce the com
mon labor law next Sunday, which
prohibits all kinds of labor except
works of charity or necessity. The
intention is to stop the runuing of the
street cars, to prevent publication of
newspapers, close livery stables, etc.
Cincinnati saloon keepers intend to
keep open as usual, and take chances
of arrest. At Columbus the Smith law
was well observed.
Collins Summers, a farmer living
near the village of Georgetown, Co
lumbiana county, Ohio, discharged
last week Wm. Hull, his work hand,
and Hull, supposing Mrs. Summers
had been the cause of his'dischsrge,
approached her while she was milk
ing and fired six shots at her, two of
them inflicting deadly wounds
through the breast and spine. The
citizens of the vicinity are greatly ex
cited and are in pursuit of Hull. A
subsequent dispatch says that Hull
was found and surrounded in the
woods near New Franklin, 14 miles
southeast of Canton, by the sheriff
and posse, and finding escape im
possible shot himself dead.
The endless variety of opinion
among frnit men why they cannot
have success in raising orchards in
Nebraska, is well calculated to dis
courage fruit-tree planting. One
says it is the character of the sub
soil, in many places being a bard and
dry clay, that the trees fail to form
healthy roots and thus fail to grow.
Another claims that the trees are
killed by the hot suns, and to prove
his opinion true shows the bark of
the trees on the south side of the tree
blistered and dead, and on the north
side green and in a healthy condition.
Now, if this injury comes from the
soil, why does it always affect the
south side of the trees. Some trees
which have been protected from the
sun on the south side have done well
and borne fruit. Another man, and
a resident nursery man of an ad
joining county claims that it is in the
quality of the trees, not being suited
to the climate, and not having been
shipped in proper condition from
Council Bluffs A special to the
Nonpareil says: Last night, while
playing Jessie James, a youth named
Dufoe, shot and killed a playmate
named Henry Wilderraan, at Glen
wood, Mills county. Dufoe pointed
a revolver at Wilderman and pulled
the trigger, supposing it was not
loaded, the victim having refused to
throw up his hands. The boy died
in a few hours and the young mur
derer is under arrest.
Boston, April 27. Ralph Waldo
Emerson died at his home in Concord,
Mass., at 9 o'clock this evening.
During the forenoon Emerson did
not appear to suffer greatly and was
apparently resting easily. About
noon the patient exhibited signs of
restlessness and began to suffer severe
pain. Soon thereafter he became de
lirious and Dr. Emerson immediately
administered ether. Under this in
fluence he was kept nntil death.
About a quarter to 9 this evening. Dr.
Emerson came down from the sick
room to the apartment where a num
ber of friends of the family were sit
ting and stated that during the after
noon Emerson's pulse bad been re
duced from 140 to 120 ; that he thought
the crisis of the disease reached and
would be passed favorably. The
Dr. then went up stairs and returned
almost immediately with the an
nouncement of his death, which was
not caused by exhaustion, but by the
acute pneumonia tubes suddenly fil
ling up and choking him. His wife,
Dr. Emerson, and an unmarried
daughter were at bis side when he
lt is likely that all the business laid
before the legislature at the extra
session by the Governor will be
transacted, if not speedily, yet with
out much debate or trouble, excepting
the congressional apportionment.
Over this, because of the ambition of
various gentlemen in the state who
aspire to seats in the national balls
of legislation, the public may reason
ably expect to see some fun, hear
considerable music of a savage sort,
and see some' very tall kicking no
matter how tho districts may be ar
ranged. There is but little time now left
for discussion, but that little should
be well occupied. Various district
ings have been suggested, but we
believe the measure most likely to
succeed is that introduced by Sen
ator Burns of Dodge, and which
passed the senate at the regular ses
sion, but only reached the second
reading in the house before that body
In this bill the first district con
sists of the counties of Douglas,
Sarpy, Cass, Otoe, Nemaha, Richard
son, Pawnee, Johnson, Gage, Lan
caster, and Saunders, all south of
the Platte except the first two coun
ties. The second district comprises the
remainder of the south Platte coun
try excepting that portion north of
Chase, Hayes, Frontier and Gosper
The third district is composed of
the remainder of the state.
We describe the districts in this
way and not by name of counties, as
being brief, and more satisfactory to
the general reader who is not sup
posed to have the map of the state
Those of our readers who have
objections to this bill should at once
make them known through the press,
or by conference with members of
Aspiring politicians iu the proposed
second and third districts are disposed
to look with favor upon Senator
Burns's measure: it is very safe to
say that the aspiring politicians in the
proposed district No. 1, will not
an extremely happy family.
Loyalton, April 18, 1882.
Editor Journal : It is with a warm
heart and eager hand that I unfold
the Journal once a week, earnestly
read every word it contains, and then
settle down to breast the great wave
of loneliness that invariably sweeps
over me as I recall the many happy
hours passed in Platte county, made
more viyid by the familiar names and
places mentioned in your paper. In
fancy I once more 6ee the grand prai
rie, flowing streams, and billows of
uplands that look in summer as a
friend once remarked "as if you
might lie down and roll forever," so
soft and beautiful are they in appear
ance. What a contrast is presented
by these grand, rugged mountains,
ever dark with the thick growth of
pine, excepting in places where the
snow of winter chooses to remain.
Our winter has been unusually
severe in some places on the moun
tains, travel crossed, snow has fallen
to the depth of twenty feet, and even
in our valley we have had more than
we were willing to welcome.
Great indignation is felt and man
ifested here on account of the Pres
ident's veto of the Chinese bill ; and
could our handsome and polished
President view the ridiculous figures
made to represent him, and the style
of neck tie applied, it might at least
serve to amuse him. To those phil
anthropic people in the East who
have so little idea of the magnitude
of the nuisance, and who think we
must be very selfish if we cannot
welcome and find room for a few
poor, unenlightened heathen, T wonld
like to repeat a little story I once
read. It was during the grass-hopper
seige throughout the northwest that
a N. H. paper remarked that wes
tern people mnst be very shiftless to
allow their crops to be taken by
grass-hoppers, why didn't they keep
turkeys to eat the grass-hoppers? A
western editor ran across the little
article and thus commented. "We
may be a shiftless, lazy set, bnt I
don't know as it's any worse than
for those New England people to be
buried in snow six months in the
year they might heat bricks and
melt off the cdow" Now, neither
the turkeys or the hot brick plan
would have any effect on the thous
ands of cooliea on this coast, and
with my politest bow I will give
them the whole race for nothing!
Not long ago, in riding but a short
distance from my home, 1 passed the.
grave of a man who in a frisky mo
tncut. shot and killed his wife, and
then hied himself to the mountains.
Now women are not over-plentiful
here, and for some strange reason the
citizens didn't approve, so a party of
mounted men started in pursuit and
in response to some forty bullets he
yielded up the ghost. Dragging him
down the rocky side, they buried him
where he now sleeps at the foot of
that lonely mountain with nothing
hut an enormous boulder to mark his
grave, and no one visits it to drop a
tear, or cares to know his sepulcher.
A little further on is an old, aban
doned shaft very deep: A few
years ago while a party of Indians
were being taken to Reno, Nev., for
trial for the killing, of some white
families, the men who had them in
charge conceived a brilliant idea, and
when they reached the shaft, per
suaded the Indians that it would be
lots of fun to play jump in; so the
first one went down, down to his
deep, long home, and in spite of their
"earnest efforts" to prevent it, every
Indian insisted and did jump into the
shaft, leaving the poor men all alone
in the road with no alternative but
to drive on and tell of the wilful de
termination of poor Lo. (Query) why
did the Indians jump in the shaft?
Wc as individuals are well and
doing well. Hoping this may be a
prosperous year to Nebraska, and
Platte county in particular. I remain,
L. M. W.
While the Journal is opposed to
the encouragement of neighborhood
and useless contests, it cannot be un
mindful of its duty as a public jour
nal, iu giving expressiou to opinion
on public matters, where the same
are expressed in an unobjectionable
manner. The Lindsay school-district
seems to be a battle-ground of more
or less interest just now, and while
we give place to a communication
from there by ex-county commis
sioner John Walker, we want it dis
tinctly understood that the other side
are to be heard also. Let the com
munications be brief, pointed, free
from personalities, and limited to
about two from each side. The con
testants iu this, as in all such cases,
should remember that, outside of
their own district, the public have
only 6uch interest as discussing af
fairs that may sometime'be applicable
in their own case. Here is No. 1:
Lindsay, April 22, 1882.
Ed. Journal : Since I have been,
elected treasurer, on the 3d inst.
which was the day of the annual
school meeting, I find on the old
treasurer's books iu the close neigh
borhood of $400 thrown away for
law and costs, and yet the director
and old treasurer have the effrontery
to say that their attorney has not re
ceived a cent of fees yet. This is
mysterious, for I find on the books
one attorney has received $113 and
another $25, sheriff's and clerk's fees
$127.50. These are only some of the
items. If this is not fees, what in the
name of common sense is it? Our
Solans say this is only costs the fees
will come in their turn. As the reg
ular, stipulated fee for their modern
Daniel O'Connell is only the modest
um of $400, four years in power and
$3,000 squandered, the stench is sick
ening to our tax-payers.
Better meet a she-bear and her cubs
than fools in their folly.
